How to get a job without any skill or experience?
Hi, I'm new to the market and I don't think I have anything to offer companies. My father insists on me to work as a construction worker or as an electrician but I don't like the environment nor the profession. I don't know how to proceed, especially in an increasingly competitive market. I need a job so I can pay for my education and college (which I haven't decided on yet) and as well as other bills as my parents are not going to help me if I ever choose anything else they prefer me becoming.
Also Samuel, you sound very smart and well spoken. I’m sure you have so much to offer an employer. 😊

This is a GREAT question!
I think you need to start to find what you like to do in your day by day activities. Listen your parents but also listen your friends and family and ask then what they think you do great. Reflect about it! After identify your preferences try to watch some youtube videos related this topic and if you want find in the Linkedin some professional that´s already working in your preference areas and send a mensage to them (if possible set up some phone call to know better about the area ;D).
You mentioned " I don't think I have anything to offer companies"... we always have somenthing to offer to our family, community and companies. When we are starting our professional life we need to focus first in our soft skills ... this will help you in your career. In this initial phase Companies normally dont consider if you had a previous experience they will consider your values and soft skills (If Samuel is organized, if Samuel helps the community, if Samuel want to learn, etc). For example... your mensage here demonstrate to me that you want to learn, you have a great english level, initiative, ask help when need.
I can see that you are from Brazil... Me too :) Please if you want send me a email or mensage in Linkedin and we can set up some time to talk. Will be a pleasure.
Perhaps the military is an option for you? Today's military offers multiple career paths, the ability to serve your country and travel. You will get training in a skill that you can have a career as civilian once you complete your service.
You will also qualify for the GI Bill which can help you pay for college or additional training once you're out.
